Koichi sticks


#1

Am I weird? Usually I make my own mnemonics as the one in Wanikani don’t work well for me, some of them do, that said, I noticed that everytime Koichi is involved in a mnemonics, it sticks very well. 公 and 光 for instance… It’s interesting, I may use Koichi in my own mnemonics…


Is there a resource where we can search kanji with the same Onyomi?
#2

It’s called indoctrination. Welcome.


#3

so another has fallen to the cult of the crabigator


#4

Not really, but let us know how well Charlie Sheen, or Hard Gay sticks by comparison.


#5

I actually thought this was gonna be someone’s idea of selling Koichi stick figures as merch. Or perhaps a snack called ‘Koichi sticks’. Too bad.


#6

Koichi is indeed sticky.


#7

When I don’t know a reading, I usually type in kou and it’s worked about ten times so far??


#8

Top secret: こういち is always accepted as a correct answer.


#9

Charlie Sheen and Hard Gay: not at all, I don’t even try to remember it… But Koichi usually works for me also…


#10

But what if you were to imagine Koichi as Hard Gay :thinking:


#11

Most of the reviews that I get wrong are when I swap images of Koichi and Hard Gay in my mind.

Sorry Koichi. Sorry Hard Gay.


#12

Just print out endless pictures of Koichi and Hard Gay and put them on your wall.

Problem solved


#13

Hard gay, I never heard of him before I read about the mnemonics, but no, it didn’t stick, I remember hard gay, but can’t tell you for what kanji it was used. Koichi works very well, I had another one today 交, with my father telling me that koichi is in fact my real father :smile:


#14

Using Koichi in a mnemonic for 硬 can get a bit weird though.


#15

Please elaborate


#16

You can’t make me!

Wait…this isn’t a forum post describing the deliciously crunchy Wanikani-brand “Koichi Sticks”, guaranteed to fill you up with just a few bites?

Man, I’m sad now.


#18

Charlie Sheen always works for me. No idea why…


#19

I thought this was about someone being stalked by Koichi, since “Koichi sticks”.

We need a Hard Koichi action figure with a pet crabigator.
